Vivid Video's Bad Wives

Starring: Dyanna Lauren, Mellissa Hill, Steven St. Croix

Directed By: Paul Thomas

Whenever you get a Vivid video, you can expect a few things.

For starters, the video's stars will all be decent-looking – of course, many of the girls are fake from their noses to their breasts. Generally speaking, the men are far more attractive – no hedgehogs and more muscles.

Secondly, the movie will have a budget. It won't be a million dollars or anything, but it's enough to include a few special effects, nice clothes and a set that doesn't look like the producer's dirty bedroom.

Unfortunately Bad Wives is rather mediocre, despite these aspects.

The story revolves around the failing relationships of two wives.

Tracy Joe (Dyanna Lauren) finds herself sick of the married life and her inconsiderate husband, Guy (Jon Dough). To fill the holes in her relationship, she constantly stuffs her mouth with stolen chocolate cookies.

Elizabeth (Mellissa Hill), on the other hand, is trying hard to keep her relationship with husband Steven (Tony Tedeschi) strong while he cheats on her with his secretary.

To get revenge on their husbands, both girls seduce the creepy bag boy Roy (Steven St. Croix) at the grocery store.

The sex scenes are often aggressive because the primary motivation behind the sex is revenge. However, it all seems to be standard issue – each scene is primarily a blow job and status quo sex.

The camera angles and the overall directing varies. One or two scenes really standout, but the majority are nothing special.

Bad Wives is basically your run-of-the-mill porn – which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Still, it lacks the creativity to put it over the top.
